DLBR: How old were you when you decided to become a singer? Who inspired you the most?
SHARI: I was 9 when I started singing in school talent shows, but 11 when I started singing and playing guitar…. My dad taught me how to play guitar, he inspired and encouraged me a lot!
DLBR: What instruments do you play?
SHARI: I play guitar and piano. And I used to play the flute! ;)
DLBR: When did you start writing songs?
SHARI: When I was 13, a really close guy friend of mine committed suicide, and I wrote a song about it, cause I didn’t know how else to deal with the pain, it’s a secret song, called “Pulled the Trigger” after the last song on my “I’m Living CD”
DLBR: What is the song that you are most proud of?
SHARI: I am truly proud of “This is The Life” that Miley Cyrus sang… Because it was the first song I ever had another artist sing of my own songs.
DLBR: What is your biggest dream?
SHARI: I want to keep inspiring the world through music! I try to do that everyday! And a Grammy would be nice too! ;)
DLBR: Where is your favorite place in the world?
SHARI: So far its a tie between New Zealand and Brazil (and I’m not just saying that) ;) my ex Boyfriend was an actor in Avatar so I lived in new Zealand for 2 months.
DLBR: We know that you are always talking to your fans on Twitter and posting pictures on instagram, are you addicted to your phone?
SHARI: Ha ha! I would say I am semi-addicted to my phone, I just always want to share with everyone how much I LOVE life and LOVE people. ;) but I do take days off! ;)

SHARI: Ha ha! I am honored that they are so passionate! I think it’s beautiful! Unless someone gets hurt! ;)

SHARI: Thank you for taking me under your wing! I know I’m singing backup, but every Lovatic treats me like I’m family. And they show me so much love and support for my music. You inspire me to keep making heartfelt music
When we asked Shari if Demi said anything about the surprises prepared by Brazilian Lovatics for her concert, she answered “Yes, Demi talks about the special things Brazil did for her almost every day…. We talked about how the Lovatics aren’t like any other fans and how she feels so connected with you guys, because you have stuck with her through everything! And how you always know how to make her feel special! You are truly amazing”
